The Mombasa Beach Hotel located at the North Coast of Kenya neatly sits on a beachfront with all the balconies of its 152 rooms providing breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean and its sandy white beach. Built in 1969, the hotel has had 3 complete refurbishments in 1986, 2001 and 2006 to give it its current look.
The beach hotel, alongside its sister hotels, the Voi Safari Lodge in Tsavo East National Park and Ngulia Safari Lodge in Tsavo West National Park have an interesting ownership story. The 3 belong to the government courtesy of the Kenya Safari Lodges and Hotels (KSLH), a limited company incorporated in 1966.
KSLH itself started operations in 1969 under the management of UK-based Hallways Hotels Ltd until 1974 when the African Tours and Hotels Ltd took over but later relinquished control to KSLH in June 1998 after it went under receivership.
The main shareholders of KSLH today are the Kenya Tourism Development Corporation, CDC, Mountain Lodge (TPS) and the Kenya Wildlife Service.
With a strategic beach location in the Nyali area of Mombasa's north coast, proximity to great tourist attractions and Nyali's buoyant shopping experience, the 3-star hotel has a lot going for it if only it can re-engineer itself to be at par with its peers in the same rating. Perhaps it is time for another makeover? Either way, the hotel provides excellent access to the ocean and the beach that will always be a plus for it.
